How would you handle cheap hits going forward?

We have seen some teams in the last few years who's intent seems to be to hurt opposing players. Many of them try hard to get one of those not so clean or overdone hits close to the end of a pass or shortly after the pass (as long as the hit could be somewhat "mistaken" for legal). They are putting their heads down and drilling guys right out of games. The NCAA has punished these teams for these hits, yet they keep occuring.

The plan seems to be to take out key players and make your team one dimensional and defend against that. Can the Ducks ever afford to let a team take out who they want without repercussion in the future?

Teams can beat the Ducks cheaply....but can they do it without being dirty? I have seen Ohio State and Stanford do it, but Stanford was figured out in 2nd half last year and Ohio State has never played the Ducks with DT. If these teams are not policed properly the Ducks need to protect themselves in a battle like this. Oregon is not a cheap shot place in general, but let's not forget-- it would have to get over some naivete in a street fight with New York state.

The other teams are saying "there is no crying in football" while they run off with your accolades. Anyone else think a team who does nothing to protect itself wins a NC against blood suckers? Not so sure about that. Your #1 guys goes out the game and no one ever remembers why your team lost. The larger #1 type teams in the recent past did not get cheap shotted so much as other teams were somewhat afraid of getting hit back by the Bama's, USC's and Florida's. I would imagine your players are uncertain about the outcomes of games when they know how they are going to react to every situation and don't have to keep "shaking the losses off".

On the real it seems as if the the only thing that could stop the Ducks are injuries and TO's. So clean up the TO's and protect yourself against injury.

How would you handle this going forward? Appalled this topic would even be discussed?
